One thing is rotten within the state of hell.
Bayonetta would possibly sound a bit completely different in Bayonetta 3, and based on the unique voice of the Umbral Witch, it is intentional.
Hellena Taylor – who has voiced Bayonetta within the unique two video games, an anime adaptation, and within the final three Smash Bros. video games – posted on her social media this morning that she wouldn’t reprise the function in Bayonetta 3 after being provided US$4000 for the function as a last provide. Taylor is asking for a boycott of the sport – with the funds donated to charity – consequently.
Prolific voice actress Jennifer Hale (Naomi Hunter within the Steel Gear Strong collection, the feminine Shepherd within the unique Mass Impact trilogy, uncredited work as Samus Aran) is offering Bayonetta’s voice for Bayonetta 3.
For comparability, the usual union price for voice performing as “extra voices” is $200/hr with a 4 hour minimal. Nintendo and developer Platinum Video games haven’t commented on the scenario.
